We dine here at least monthly, in the bar or restaurant. Since Chef Al arrived, the menu selections have been exciting and the flavor combinations delicious. Last night was martini night in the bar, so we enjoyed those and a glass of wine at half price. Our server hand stuffed some blue cheese olives for us. Ordered the Happy Hour... More

This has got to be the best restaurant in this area. Ever since they brought in the new Chef from Louisiana the entire selection of food has at least doubled in quality. Last night we had a variety of items and each was just bursting with flavor and all the accompaniments complimented each other. Selected food from the bar menu... More

Our waitress was super friendly & by the time we got to dessert she was having fun and playing around joking with our table. My parents... More

When you are paying $100 a person (w/wine) the service should be at a certain level. Our server, Angela, was disinterested & acted as if she was put out to be there. When asked for menu selections, she had no comment. When asked about the appetizers, nothing. When bringing out the wine, she started opening up the bottle before returning... More
